Clarksville Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating and identifying an armed robber.
Clarksville Police say this morning around 9:45 a white male entered the Big Lots store located at 10-41 South Riverside through the front doors and displayed a handgun and demanded cash from ones of the clerks.
Police say the suspect then fled from the store on foot after receiving an undisclosed amount of money.
The man was last seen on the back side of the store walking on Forest Street and is described as a white male in his late 20s, approximately 6’, thin build, dark ball-cap with a New York Yankees emblem on it, wearing a black jacket, striped shirt, tan cargo shorts, with a thin and light colored beard and dark colored sneakers.
Police are urging anyone who has information about the suspect to contact 931-645-8477.
Detective Josh Jobe is the lead investigator on the armed robbery case.
